Great sandwiches and Italian dishes. Plentiful portions and friendly service. We enjoy the chicken parm and the steak sandwich varieties. The décor is a bit outdated, but it seems clean.

This is my goto place when i'm looking for something to eat and well typically end up getting the Grilled Chicken Salad. Super fresh and high quality ingredients, and the homemade bread they include is absolutely awesome.

I'm not sure how this place is still open. I've watched one employee (middle aged obnoxious Italian guy) wipe snot on his hands and then immediately touch the food on more than one occasion. I'm also fairly sure I saw a mouse. The place is disgusting and hasn't been cleaned or updated since the 90's. Don't let the front or... More

This is your classic neighborhood Italian restaurant. Great spot to take the kids on a Friday night. Easy food, easy going staff, cheap table wine and beer. Two people with a carafe of wine,entres and some mozerella garlic bread will run you about 50 bucks. All the folks are great, and they deliver if you are close by!

Have been a customer for the last 13+ years. Pizza is always good - one of best in the area and there are lots of pizza places nearby. If you like your pizza crispier, ask them to cook it a little longer. Eat-in is good though waitresses service can vary. Sandwiches, pasta and other items are good but pizza is... More

I could have used a little more in the 'portion size' and 'tastiness' categories, but otherwise, they were pretty damn good.

My lunch experience was really a nightmare. The attitudes of the two waitresses was appalling. They treated me terribly and I would never return again.

If you think you are just picking up a pizza, think again. This menu has more than you can imagine on it. The servings are huge, actually enough to share or safe for the next day. Prices are consistent with the size of the potions. Great place for families, parties and just to meet up with friends. There is no... More

Stop in and had dinner with the family and loved it. Very kid friendly but didn't feel like I was sitting in a Burger King or Chucky Cheese's. Food was great and the prices were fair. We got so much food we took it home for dinner the next night. Will be going back and telling all my freinds about... More
